Kyrgyz authorities have no info on Bakiyev's relatives plotting provocations in Osh
BISHKEK. Jan 10 (Interfax) - Law enforcement agencies will prevent any escalations of tensions in Kyrgyzstan in the wake of mayoral elections in the country's capital, Bishkek, and the southern city of Osh, Deputy Prime Minister Tokon Mamytov, who coordinates Kyrgyz security services' operations, said at a press conference on Friday.
The mayoral elections in Bishkek and Osh have been set for January 15.
According to several media outlets, the brother of former Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, Zhanysh, has arrived in China's city of Urumchi to fund riots being plotted in Osh after the mayoral elections there.
"Our law enforcement agencies are verifying the information that was spread by individual media outlets concerning alleged preparations to stage riots in the southern capital," Mamytov said.
"According to these reports, members of the former president's family are currently in China and are plotting provocations after the mayoral elections in Osh. But we do not have any official information able to confirm these reports," he said.
The heads of local security services are doing their best to prevent possible tensions in the region, he said.
"They are double-checking this information together with special services and law enforcement agencies of the neighboring state," the deputy prime minister said.
